Period 40 – Contentment

What does ‘being content’ mean? It means being happy with who you are and what you have.


Story of Snub nose

A small boy fervently prays to God to grant him a sharp nose so that he can look handsome like his friend.God sends angel Gabriel to grant him his wish. The boy is initially very happy because God has granted him a sharp nose but on looking into a mirror.… is horrified to see his very long snowman nose. He now realises that GOD KNOWS BEST & has already given him everything that is very good for him. He now apologises to God & asks him to grant him back his original nose. God is happy with him & grants him his original nose.

Do you and your friends look alike? No! There are fat, thin, dark, fair tall and short children. Some of you may be a good singer, good dancer, have good handwriting, good drawing etc.So always be happy about what you have and how you look.

Song

“I am the way I am”

I am the way I am
And I am very happy with that
I may be short or I may be tall
My body may be thin or fat
But it really doesn’t matter at all
I am the way I am
